:: Updates ::

Hey, all. Back to blogging for me. (For real, this time.) My computer died; the graphics card was so worn that it overheated the computer every time 3D graphics were involved, so I couldn’t do pretty much anything at all on there. I’m currently using a REALLY old spare laptop; it’s way out of date. The 9( key – which was busted on the other computer – works, but that’s about it. Planet Minecraft doesn’t work, Minecraft doesn’t work, RIFT doesn’t work, and the Microsoft Word program is so out of date that writing is nearly impossible. I haven’t tried Animal Jam, but that’s kind of a last resort. So I fell back to TweenFictionGirl again.

Thing is, I have next to nothing to write about. So, PLEASE, ask some questions or suggest some posts or SOMETHING. Help me get back into the blogging spirit!!

Back to Blogging!

Hey, guys!! Oh my goodness… it’s been SO LONG since I’ve posted anything on TFG!!! I have SO much to talk about, and I don’t know if you want to read it all, but here it is anyway.

I got back on Animal Jam for the first time in, like, a year. A whole lot has changed – too much for me. {2much4me.} My friend wanted his account back, but it still had most of my stuff on it, so I’m pretty bummed about that. I’m still a non-member, which I don’t really care about, but it irritates me that it’s such a pay-to-win game.

Speaking of pay-to-win games, I kind of dropped Diablo III. Actually, it got accidentally deleted when we were cleaning out the computer. Instead, I started playing another RPG instead, and this one’s free: RIFT. It’s not exactly new; I played it back in 2011 when it was fresh out of beta, but at $15 a month it was WAY too expensive to play for long. The good news is, it’s now free to play, except for a couple optional in-game purchases to get more currency, objects, etc. I’ve already played to level 38.

I owned a Minecraft server for about three months, but it got a bit boring, so it’s getting closed. It’s difficult to do anything other than vanilla, and I didn’t really know how to code, so I just played vanilla survival with Amber, Celestia, and a couple people on Planet Minecraft.

Speaking of Planet Minecraft, I got a name change, got to level 45, and rose quite a bit in the popularity scale. My skins have improved a TON.

Well, I guess that’s about it. Thanks for reading my long string of nothingness!


Planet Minecraft Contest!

Hey, guys! This isn’t going to be a real post, but don’t worry, there’ll be one later. Anyway, yesterday on Planet Minecraft, the new monthly contest was announced. The theme is circus characters. I made and posted my skin this morning, and in order to get to the finals like I did last month [yay!!!] I need lots of likes on the skin. So, if you have a PMC account or were thinking about getting one, it would be AWESOME if you could diamond my skin and help me. Thanks!!!!

5 Cool Things to Build in Minecraft

Hey, guys!!  I’m so sorry I haven’t posted for so long, but school is starting so soon and we’ve had a busy week.  I felt awful for not posting anything for so long, but I was just about out of ideas, so here’s my post for today: five awesome things you can make on Minecraft!

1.  Your House In Real Life

I don’t know why this one is so fun, but it is.  There’s a weird kind of satisfaction in making your actual house out of blocks.  Invite all your friends over to your server and you can have a sleepover at your house without having to bring them all over to your real house!!

2.  Animal Traps

There are various blueprints for redstone-powered mob traps all over the Internet.  If you can get a spawner inside one, you basically have an infinite supply of meat, and let’s admit it, it’s fun to watch virtual animals trigger virtual traps.  

3.  A Huge Castle

This one may be a bit cliched, but for a reason.  These things are awesome.  You can make them even cooler looking than the Crystal Palace on Animal Jam since you can customize the size so much more easily, and living in your castle mansion is just so fun, whether you’re in survival or creative.

4.  A Statue of Yourself

These things look awesome when they’re finished!  Who DOESN’T want a giant version of themselves overlooking their Minecrafting?  I recommend using white stained clay for skin.  It’s kind of flesh-colored, even though it’s supposed to be white.

5.  Sky Adventure

I think Flora and I may have actually invented this one.  It’s like a cross between a parkour and an adventure map.  There’s a point or a story like an adventure map, and there may even be boss fights or traps to escape, but it’s all on platforms in the air.  I’m currently working on posting my sky adventure, which I named the Myrest, on my Planet Minecraft account.  It’s pretty old – like pre 1.6 old – but it’s still super fun.

Thanks for reading, even though I haven’t posted anything in so long!!
